Real Estate 101 - Sellers - Declutter

The process of selling your house starts way before you put the for sale sign out front.  One of the first things you should do is start the process of decluttering.  Few things turn potential buyers off more than piles of stuff everywhere. To accomplish your decluttering goals, we recommend the KonMari method app. This the official app developed in conjunction with the creator of the KonMari method, Marie Kondo and features checklist to help you move through your home, one category at a time.  Just search in your app store to find the app and download to get started.

Next week, our co-founder Melanie Coker will be sharing her experiences with the app on her personal blog as she works to declutter and reorganize her home after The Great Flood of 2016. Check back next week for the link to follow along.

The Buyer Always Rings Once

Early in my real estate career, a very successful and experienced agent told me to always make sure the doorbell worked before putting a house on the market. This may seem like a tiny detail, but I can't tell you how many potential buyers I've seen go straight for the doorbell when they walk in a house. And they definitely make judgements based on whether or not it works. It's a little thing you can do that makes a big difference.
